The Clam Chair in Sheepskin by Arnold Madsen - New Edition

About the Item

Official re-edition of the iconic clam chair by Arnold Madsen. Dagmar in collaboration with the estate of Arnold Madsen is proud to re-launch the Clam Chair - one of the most cherished and sought after Scandinavian furniture designs of the 20th century. Examples Shown: Sahara Sheepskin + Oiled Oak. The Clam Chair was first designed in 1944 in Copenhagen by Danish upholsterer Arnold Madsen. In 1945 Arnold founded the furniture company Madsen & Schubell together with the cabinetmaker Henry Schubell in order to produce this unique chair that became known as the Muslingstol or Clam chair due to its’ unique shape. Arnold & Henry achieved great commercial success with the Clam chair in Denmark and then in 1953 signed the exclusive rights to Norwegian manufacturers Vik & Blindheim who continued production in Norway until the 1960s. Over the years the Clam chair has become one of the most misattributed and copied designs of the 20th Century. But now, thanks to extensive recent research the history of the Clam has finally been corrected to show Arnold Madsen as the one true designer. Dagmar is proud to relaunch this iconic Scandinavian design in conjunction with the estate of Arnold Madsen for 2022 as part of our new Heritage Collection. This new production remains true to the original chair and Arnold's vision for the design. It features a solid beech wood frame and arms and legs made from either solid oak or walnut in a range of finishes. All the wood parts have been developed and manufactured using cutting edge 5-Axis CNC milling technology in the UK. The chair is upholstered using strictly traditional methods with 100% natural fibres including coir and wool felt fibre, French linen webbing and hessian. The Clam chair is available in a wide range of upholstery and wood finishes and is made exclusively in the UK by Dagmar Design.
